OPENING SERVE: The Tigers host a pair of Ohio Valley Conference matches versus UT Martin on Friday and Southeast Missouri on Sunday to close the season. TSU has gone 4-3 in home matches this season.

LAST TIME OUT: TSU is looking to bounce back from a 7-0 loss at Murray State on April 12. The Racers won the doubles point and went on to take all six singles matches.

ABOUT UT MARTIN: Winners of five in a row, UT Martin is 10-10 overall. The Skyhawks’ 7-1 OVC record is good enough for a three-way tie atop the regular season standings. Six UT Martin players have won 10 or more singles matches led by Sarah Candeloro’s 18-14 record.

ABOUT SEMO: The Redhawks are 1-17 and 0-8 in the OVC with the team’s lone win coming against Chicago State on Jan. 30. Mariya Krupa and Mila Majtan both lead SEMO with 10 singles wins apiece.

LAST SEASON VS. OPPONENTS: In last year’s meeting in Cape Girardeau, Mo., TSU was handed a 7-0 loss to Southeast Missouri. The Tigers also suffered a 6-0 loss at UT Martin last season in a match that featured only singles action.
